Drugs used in Interventional Radiology

There are many different classes of medications used by the interventional radiologist which have an effect on and are useful during the pre-, peri-, intra-, and post-procedural settings. It is important to be aware of the medications likely to be used by the interventional radiologist, medications a patient may be taking prior to the procedure and possible interactions with the procedure. In the pre-procedural setting, important classes of medications to be aware of include anticoagulants, prophylactic antibiotics, and contrast media. In the intra-procedural setting, vasoactive substances, gastric motility agents, sedative agents, analgesics, and local anesthetic agents are important. There are several classes of medications that may be used in the post-procedural setting including analgesic agents, antimicrobial agents, antiemetic agents, and anticoagulants.
